Today is Friday here in Australia, so our weekend is near.
I hope you all have a great weekend when it gets to you.
John rang from Mildura about lunch-time. It is about six
hours north of Shepparton and is close to the borders of
both South Australia and New South Wales. I hope he is
able to keep warm tonight in a small tent and inside a swag.
Which is probably called a Bed roll ?
His daughter Bec rang him for his birthday and was barely
able to speak. She has a throat infection, very sore, and she
can’t speak at all . She is on medication from Doctor, so hope
she will soon feel better. Thinking about you Bec.!!
We have a long weekend, with Monday being the day we honor
the Queen’s birthday ( She was 80 in April) but it suits to
have it celebrated in June. I do not know why. Perhaps to
spread the holidays, as Easter is late March or April.
Tonight we begin with a Grandpa Poem. Fair’s fair after all.
WALKING WITH GRANDPA.
I like to walk with Grandpa,
His steps are short like mine.
He doesn’t sau “Now Hurry Up”
He always takes his time,
I like to walk with Grandpa,
His eyes see things like mine do –
Wee pebbles bright, a funny cloud.
Half hdden drops of dew.
Most people have to hurry,
They don’t stop and see.
I’m glad that God made Grandpa,
Unrushed, and young like me. Poem by Thena Smith.

<><><><><><><> Joke of the Day ~ not very nice <><><><><><>
A homeless man knocks on the door and when the lady answers
he says: “Lady, I haven’t eaten for days. Could you spare a bite
She said: “You poor man, would you like some of yesterday’s soup?” “you bet I would,” he said.
“Fine,” she said, “come back tomorrow.”
<><><><><> I did warn that it was not very nice. <><><><><>
Now for a riddle ~~ Not very easy (in my opinion) Now I guess
you will all find it very simple!! Oh Well. <><><><>
Seven letters are we,
Three different words we make,
Guess us or be ridiculed;
Your reputation’s at stake.
The first has pictures,
Paintings and such,
The second causes sneezing,
from ragwood or dust
The third is an adverb,
It’s hard to explain,
It’s the same as immensely
But it’s much more plain.
These clues are sparse
This riddle may be tough.
But if you’re smart
Then it will be enough.
